DragonsDream TIO#54 - Emboss it - Cuttlebug

The cuttlebug folder I have used is called "You". I intended never to buy a small folder again but I saw this and I had to have it. Visions of embossed metal etc. sometime.

The theme for the tag is Father and Son and I have used a lovely Crafty Individuals stamp. I bought this because the text made me laugh and also the "son" looks very much like my husband John when he was a teenager. I have placed the images near the words that apply to them. John's dad was a first officer on supply ships on the Russian convoys in the war and was torpedoed many times and survived many hours in the freezing waters. Extraordinary he certainly was, strong and dear.

The "son" is near loving and fantastic and under precious because that is what he is to me.

I hope you like my sentimental tag - I enjoyed making it and thinking about things while I did so.

Please feel free to leave a comment, I do appreciate them all.
